Extravagant Texas attorney Thomas J. Henry splashed out $10 million on a lavish bash featuring Maroon 5 and Enrique Iglesias on Saturday night.
Henry – well-known for spending $6 million on his daughter Maya’s quinceañera at which Nick Jonas and Pitbull performed – went all out to celebrate his firm’s 25th anniversary.
He flew in Adam Levine and his band from LA via private jet to surprise all 400 of his employees at the Henry B Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio while guests were treated to 500 bottles of Champagne, Jell-O shots, cocktails and a raw bar brimming with shrimp, alongside tacos, sliders and dessert stands – all amid huge walls of red roses.

“Living” Grecian statues were there to greet the more than 1,100 guests, clad in black tie, as they strolled in. San Antonio favorite Austin Mahone performed, followed by mariachi band Mariachi Nuevo Estilo – who had appeared on “America’s Got Talent” in 2017 – and sang their own version of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’.”
But it was Iglesias, 43, who got the crowd – including Kelly Osbourne, Lance Bass, Kendra Wilkinson, Aussie model Shanina Shaik and singer Imani Scott – going with hits including “Bailamos” and “I Like It” – joking as he ran around “Am I getting too old for this s – – t!”
And at midnight, Maroon 5 took the stage and performed a string of their greatest hits, with one guest gasping: “I wonder how much this cost.”
Dad of two Levine, 39, draped himself in two diamond necklaces, a black T-shirt and brown velour sweatpants for the occasion and belted out “This Love,” “Sugar,” “Moves Like Jagger,” his own version of Michael Jackson’s “Rock With You,” as well as “She Will Be Loved” and “One More Night.”
Henry told the crowd it was the most he had ever spent on a party – but said: “You’re all my family.”

With his stunning wife, Azteca, 40, by his side, he added: “Have fun – I’m going to get so drunk I won’t remember this tomorrow!”
A source said, “Thomas wanted all of his employees to have a taste of the fabulous life that he enjoys.”
The party featured more than 40,000 roses flown in from six countries, more than 1,000 Phalaenopsis orchids and more than 2,500 candles.
There was a 200-pound bluefin tuna carved on-site, a sushi station and a live nitrogen ice cream station.
The wealthy personal-injury attorney, of San Antonio, first made headlines for spending millions on his daughter’s 15th birthday in 2016. Maya is now 18. The lavish event was held across a 55,000-square-foot space in San Antonio, which was decorated with 30-foot tall cherry trees in full blossom, walls of roses, fountains, a “garden room” and a ballroom with butterflies suspended from the ceiling.
And in December 2017, Maya’s big brother Thomas Jr.(now 19) marked his 18th birthday with an equally decadent $4 million bash, complete with burlesque dancers and a Ferrari for his present.
But Henry had his own fun during his 56th birthday celebration in April – a $4.5 million party on Palm Island in Miami Beach, Fla., featuring Cardi B, DJ Khaled and Mahone.
His 75 close friends and relatives – including Kim Kardashian’s pal Jonathan Cheban and Red Bull athlete Gustavo Yacaman, a Colombian racing driver, got to watch fire dancers and sip Champagne.
While Henry – who stars alongside his family in the YouTube reality series “Hangin’ with Los Henrys” – was presented with a Patek Philippe watch from Azteca.
